Australia 'keen to secure bigger piece of global cruise market'
Australian tourism chiefs are keen to see the country secure a bigger piece of the lucrative international cruise market.
Senior cruise company executives will arrive in Sydney this week to see what the nation has to offer.
Cruise Down Under chairman Chris White confirmed that the cruise industry is contributing $2 billion to the Australian economy and this figure could grow sharply if more fleets choose to stop off at ports across the nation.
"The time is right to bring these key executives to showcase our amazing country," she remarked.
People who take a cruise generally have plenty of overseas travel money to spend, so businesses in coastal towns and cities will inevitably benefit from more frequent visits.
Aussies find cruise tours attractive because they allow them to see numerous countries in one single trip.
Visiting so many different lands has caused people headaches in the past, as they needed to buy a plethora of different currencies, but this is no longer the case.
Some travel credit cards enable holidaymakers to load a range of different currencies on to their plastic, which is obviously far more convenient.
